This is a standard .pkg file to install osxutils without running the
install.sh shell script.
All files are installed in /usr/local with the proper owner and
permissions, therefore the installer will also require an admin
password to install.

    osxutils 1.6 is out now, with 3 downloads: src, bin and pkg.

    FYI man files for /usr/local/bin really should go into /usr/local/
    share/man and not /usr/local/man as is the case with this package
    you submitted. Indeed our previous osxutils releases also
    incorrectly installed the man files into /usr/share/man (which
    should only be for /usr/bin files).

    The new install/uninstall for osxutils 1.6 will remove old osxutils
    man files from /usr/share/man but not from /usr/local/man, so
    anyone who used this unofficial pkg will have to delete these
    manually.

    Also this package is missing the docs and GNU license file. :) I
    appreciate your effort though, and for future releases I will try to
    always have a pkg file for those who prefer it.
